[QUOTE=NY's stepchild;4504287]When we run the 46 we will have extra safeties instead of linebackers. That's why we have safety/lb tweeners. This defense is going to be all about versatility. We'll see how it all works out, but it'll be interesting. The only thing that's clear is that Rex expects to keep the lineman out of the secondary. If DDNY is right then it's not going to work.[/QUOTE]
I didn't know DDNY was a defensive coordinator? Maybe the Jets should hire him instead of having Pettine. DDNY is a smart poster, and is right half the time, but why do people here think they've figured out the offseason plan? Just by personnel moves? Because of something Rex says? Since when does anyone take anything the coaches say seriously anymore? We haven't watched a snap of this defense yet, but we already know how it's run?
Everything Rex is trying to do is predicated on speed and pass rush, hence the weight loss and Coples. It's not a secret. What is a secret is how he plans to use the personnel. Maybin? Wilkerson's productivity? Everything depends on something else.
You won't know what the defense is going to do until you watch the secondary. The secondary tells you what the LBs are doing, and then what the DL does. That's how QBs read the field after the ball is snapped.
Brady has little clue as to what we're up to this offseason. Why do we think we know? We can discuss it, and give opinions, but already half dismissing an off-season of work based on those opinions is silly. So negative.
What would you have the defense do? The clearly have a plan, and I like that, more than any other year.
